I have one the is a 1901, one 1928, and one that is around 1940,
The 2 older ones are Singers the other one is a Franklin. I had never heard of the Franklin model before. I think it was during WWII as the finish is the gun metal style.
Beautiful machine. Hope you have many happy projects using your new baby. I just recently purchased an antique machine. 1926 model. I looked up 100 most popular names for that year and picked Violet. Have you named yours yet?
No Stephanie, I haven't named her yet. I never thought to look up popular names for that year. I should try it. when I got my featherweight I named her Lucy. My Mothers middle name was Lucelle and one of my old bosses couldn't remember my name (Louise) so he started calling me Lucy.
Stephanie, I looked up the top 20 names for 1910 and my name was #20. That is wild. My grandmothers name was #7 (Elizabeth) and she did have one of these treadle machines so I'll name her Lizzie after my Grandma. Thank you for the idea.
